History and Horror Come to Life
The independence of America started on the streets of Boston on a cold, snowy day in 1770, with a riot that transformed into the Boston Massacre. Beantown is a city that has been at the eye of the storm since its inception, inspiring some of our biggest uprisings, each one costing it dearly in blood, lives, and souls scarred forever. Boston Ghosts will reveal the true stories behind the sacrifices that forged a nation and the pain that created a city of lost souls that have haunted its streets and residents for centuries.
Boston is an old city that has one foot in the present and another deeply embedded in the past. It is a past full of dark deeds and a darker history where ghosts of old yearn to make contact. In a city where rebels, Quakers, and the innocent were routinely hanged, Beantown’s oldest park, the famous Boston Common, was once a public killing arena. Hundreds were executed, some unjustly, and some were just caught up in the madness of the mob.

Regiments of Restless Revolutionary Souls
The Revolutionary War comes to life when the sun sets and the City Of Champions makes way for ghosts, superstitions, and the bizarre events that have been part of Boston’s history since its inception. The city, today known for its iconic marathon, world-famous craft beers, and legendary stadium Fenway Park, has forever been deeply entrenched in the mystery of the unexplained and a belief in the presence of the otherworldly. As you adventure through the forsaken streets of Beantown, dive deep into the strange stories and cruel fates the history books always seem to gloss over.
“The Hub of The Universe,” as Oliver Wendell Holmes defined Boston, has seen unending bloodshed over its centuries-old history. The countless communities that called it home, even before it was part of New England, witnessed bouts of indigenous hysteria, unrelenting Puritan persecution, and unending volleys of bullets during the Revolutionary War. Boston has always had a fiery heart that inspired rebels and revolutions, but it’s also faced more than its share of heartache and destruction as it gave way to looting by Pirates and endured a ghastly history its citizens haven’t always been proud of.
Uncover the haunted history of one of the oldest cities in the United States. Discover the tragedy of the Boston Common. Open the lurid volumes of criminal confessions bound in the skin of their murderous authors at the Boston Athenaeum. Come face to face with the spooks that roam the abandoned grounds of Province House.
Haunted Hotels and the Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future
The list of haunted parks, commons, and burial grounds goes on in the city that sparked the American Revolution. Even more terrifying are its haunted and historic hotels, some as old as the city, which were built on ancient powerful sites still rife with all manner of apparitions. Visit the Omni Park Hotel, the oldest standing continuously operating hotel in the country. Although it was a favorite of Charles Dickens who liked to stay the night, it was the hotel’s founder who decided to never leave. Hear even more chilling details and find out what the continuously occupied and haunted room on the third floor always smells like no matter how many times it’s cleaned.
Walk through the streets that once served as paving for our forefathers and hear about the human monsters and devils that frightened them. Venture down the historic avenues that gave birth to and feel something more than just the coastal wind slide against your skin.
Why is Boston So Haunted?
When America decided to revolt, it was Boston that shouted first and kicked its meek and spooked brethren, the other colonies, into the fray. It was on Boston’s grounds that the Tea Party would set the world aflame and it was on these streets that a brave man rode his horse like the devil and cried. “The British are coming!” Boston is one of America’s most haunted places, not only because of its incredibly fascinating and terrifying history–one drenched in blood and guts–but because the place that has the power to birth a nation also has the power to create something sinister and deadly that never truly fades away.
Boston is one of the world’s most haunted cities because it deserves that honor. The Cradle of Liberty, the instigator of our freedom and the American Revolution, is where the Yankee spirit was born. It’s where the Nation’s spirit perpetually trudges on, along with the ghosts of the fallen, the old, and the brave–dead and undead–who all come to congregate nightly.
